They are being housed at the Selarang Park Complex as of 18 November.

SPS said that some of the infected inmates who were infected across all the prisons are sent there – those who are asymptomatic and shared a cell with others will be sent there.

They added that they do allow inmates who are held inside single cells to stay in their own cell during the recovery because they don’t come into contact with others.

However the same cannot be done for those who are sharing cells with other inmates.

Those who were moved to the quarantine centre will then by taken care of by a team of healthcare officers.

However, with that being said, the centre is not a medical centre – those who require treatment will be sent to the nearest government hospital under supervision.

The decision to send the inmate to the hospital will be up to the prison medical officer’s discretion, according to the inmates symptoms, age, vaccination status and etc.
